KEARNEY — CHI Health Good Samaritan welcomes central Nebraska artist Gary R. Nickels to its Walkway Gallery. Nickels’ nature and wildlife photography and paintings will be on display through October.
“Being surrounded by Mother Nature is where I’m most at peace. There’s no better feeling than being out there with the sounds, smells, and beauty that surround me. I drive many miles and spend many man-hours photographing wildlife. If it’s not in its natural habitat, I do not photograph it,” said Nickels.
Nickels, 81, graduated from Kearney State College with a double major in Art and Science. He worked for the National Endowment for the Arts and Humanities Nebraska as an artist in residence in schools across the state. For more than 40 years, he taught art to elementary, high school, and college students.
